Clean up some confusion

friendly reminder to black people our current situation in context

We are in a war with white people/ ( false)

White people are waging war against black people/ (true)

What is the difference you might ask?

we are obviously not waging war against white people,

We are simply trying to defending ourselves against highly orchestrated and coordinated attacks set toward us black people and a very poor defense to add to our punch drunk informal group self defense, we shrewdly throw together in times of need.

In fact I urge black people to practice self discipline and organically become one with one another under the same agenda more organized to mount a admirable defense.
And maybe then we can think about waging war against these white terroristic overlords

Hip-Hop can be a very powerful weapon to help expand young people’s political and social consciousness. But just as with any weapon, if you don’t know how to use it, if you don’t know where to point it, or what you’re using it for, you can end up shooting yourself in the foot or killing your sisters or brothers. The government recognized immediately that Rap music has enormous revolutionary potential.
